In the Volkswagen Bio Runner, the rider has controls attached to his/her hands and feet that manipulate the wheels via synthetic muscle-based suspension. The vehicle has dual-turbine engines that run at an ultra-efficient 500,000 rpm and operate on bio-synthetic jet fuel. The vehicle feeds video to the driver when visibility is limited and contains telemetry analysis software, which in the case of emergency, takes over piloting to avoid danger unseen by the driver.
